DIRECTIONS

  • Remove 16 shrimp and set aside.
  • Coarsely chop rest of shrimp. Mix with the next six ingredients and refrigerate. Start with 1 tbls creole seasoning and taste before adding more. The flavor increases some with standing.
  • To Make Tomato Bowls:
  • Decide which sides of the tomato will lay flatter. Cut off thin strip to help this happen.
  • Cut off top and empty insides.
  • Lightly salt insides and turn upside down to drain. Leave like this about fiftheen minutes. Do not rinse.
  • Stand upright. Cut in half from top to bottom making sure that the stripped side will now be the bottom.
  • Line 4 plates with lettuce leaves. Fill each tomato half.
  • Place two halves on a plate. Top each half with two whole shrimp and sprinkle with parsley.
  • Yum, yum -- enjoy!
